Bio

BD Wong is an American actor best known for his starring role as Dr. George Huang, a forensic psychiatrist and expert on the criminal mind, in the police procedural television series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

He also had a starring role as Dr. Lee, one of the therapists helping Detective Michael Britton (Jason Isaacs) unravel his two worlds, on the police procedural fantasy drama television series Awake, in 2012.

Wong gained notice as a cast regular on the critically acclaimed series Oz, playing the resilient prison priest Father Ray for the show's five-season run.

Other television credits include a starring role in All-American Girl, And the Band Played On, Welcome to New York, Chicago Hope, The X-Files, Bless This House and Shannon's Deal.

Wong has also appeared in more than 20 feature films, including Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, The Freshman opposite Marlon Brando and Matthew Broderick, Father of the Bride (the original and sequel), Seven Years in Tibet, Executive Decision, and The Salton Sea starring Val Kilmer and Vincent D'Onofrio.

Wong can also be heard as the voice of Shang in the Disney animated film Mulan and Mulan II. He will soon be seen in Marc Forster's Stay starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts.

Wong is the only actor ever to have received all five major New York theatre awards for a single role. For his performance in M. Butterfly, his Broadway debut, he received the Tony Award, the Drama Desk Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Theater World Award, and the Clarence Derwent Award.

Additional New York theatre credits include The Tempest, A Language of Their Own, As Thousands Cheer, and the Broadway musical revival of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown in a critically acclaimed performance as Linus.

Wong also starred in the Roundabout Theatre's production of Stephen Sondheim's Pacific Overtures for which he received a Drama League nomination for distinguished performance.

Wong is openly gay - he and then-partner Richie Jackson hired a surrogate mother (Jackson's sister) to bear them a child. She bore twins, one of whom - Boaz Dov Wong - died at birth as a result of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.

In May 2003 Wong published his first book, Following Foo: (the electronic adventures of the Chestnut Man), which chronicles his second son Jackson's struggle for life after he was born 11 weeks premature.

Born and raised in San Francisco, California, Wong currently resides in New York City.
